Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial.
Everything is permissible, but not everything is constructive.
Listen to my voice in the morning Lord.
Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.
Lead me in the right path, O Lord,
or my enemies will conquer me.
Tell me clearly what to do,
and show me
Commit your actions to the Lord
and your plans will succeed.
Yikes, need to work on that Psalm verse!
The next verses were also used in the Made to Crave book in Chapter 6 and are about allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us so that we can avoid temptations. When we let the Holy Spirit do that then we are rewarded with the fruit of the spirit.
So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won't be doing what your sinful nature craves.
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives:
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
There is no law against these things.
About Memory Monday
I originally found Memory Monday with Joanne at The Simple Wife. The idea is to memorize a verse during the week and come back to her blog on Mondays to comment about it. That's it, nothing fancy, just simply an encouragement and reminder to memorize scripture for yourself. Please join in Memory Monday as a way to be blessed by hiding God's Word in your heart. And also join me in prayer for Joanne as she continues to recover from the stroke she had in January.
About Siesta Scripture Memory Team
This is another program to encourage us to memorize scripture and is hosted by Beth Moore over on her blog Living Proof Ministries Blog. This program is set up so that each person who wants to join the Siesta Scripture Memory Team will memorize two verses a month for all of 2011 and post a comment on the LPM blog on the 1st and the 15th of the month. If you do that all year you get to attend a Celebration with her and the SSMT next January! I so want to do that, don't you?
